I am not sure this belongs in this forum, so feel free to move it.

I was researching some material for my blog, when I came across this story:

Patterns in the Void

In fact, the whole place - Markawasi - sounds fascinating.
It may be hyped up, considering there's a book at stake, but I am sure it's worth researching.

Has anyone been there?

Fascinating place! I'd never heard of it before, thanks for sharing this.


This trailer for the book shows some incredible photos taken there....

Neither have I. Heard of it, I mean.
Strange, isn't it?
That's why I thought it might be hyped up, just a little bit...

Then again, maybe it isn't.

I found this to be just amazing. Here's an interact map of the area.

Fascinating

I've seen some cool picture online before of possible rock formations carved eons ago but never this many and in one location. I'm going to keep an eye on this one


That brings to mind a " What If "

What if one day 25.000 years from now the remains of this monument were DISCOVERED

faculty.eicc.edu...

Of course it would not look so life like then!

About finding the monument you mentioned, I mean.

I have always been fascinated by the idea of an ancient people who lived on earth in prehistoric times way before modern mans version of history.

Ha, I know what you mean!


Being somewhat familiar with the archaeological & art historical lingo, my friends and I used to make up hilarious "reconstructions" of future archaeologists' musings about the religious significance of our predominant debris - namely, plastic bags - and the cult they may have been associated to...

Are there no native Peruvians, or at least Southamericans on this board?
Or people who have lived in Peru?

I was really hoping for some first-hand impressions of the site.

Is this close the the place where they think a stargate is?

I wonder if this is where the Hall of Records that Edgar Cayce talked about in one of his readings will be found.

How can rocks get stacked on top like that? How can that be natural?

The only ways I can think of is wind or volcano.

It's almost like a giant stonehenge

It's a pretty neat collection of simulacra, sure. Manmade? Doubtful. No cohesive style, and you really have to squint on a large number of the examples in order to almost think you see something. If it weren't for someone labeling them as this or that, you likely wouldn't see anything.

I never thought they were man-made - although I am quite open to the idea that some of the natural forms could have been "improved" upon by people.

But personally, I am more interested in the "dimensional" anomalies reported.

While replying to WalkingFox, I happened to notice a post by an anonymous poster which cannot be seen normally - I can only see it while replying.

I have copied and pasted the text (see above).

I don't have a specific reply, not at this time.
I just wanted to acknowledge the post, because I am sure most of us cannot see it right now.

I think it is fairly common to see rocks with strange erosion patterns. Soft and hard rock layers erode at different rates. The common term for them are Hoodoos.









lots of interesting Hoodoo formations here

Cool pictures!

(Be sure to check the thread on mimetoliths, if you are interested in natural rock formations).

Nature is the most amazing designer there ever was.

Ah, there you are - the AP whose post was semi-hidden yesterday.

I don't think this site has anything to do with Cayce's predictions (I think his referred to Egypt).

But there definitely seem to be some unusual phenomena going on.
So, for all I know, it could be a "portal" of some sort.

Too bad there seems to be nobody here who has actually visited the site.

Yes "She" is!! I will look at that thread, thanks. I am a rock hound.
this is my favorite rock from your link. I collect heart shaped rocks, both natural and shaped by hand.
